Re: Lit Agent for Dope-Ass Teen Sci-Fi Novel?

If they're querying as a Nicholl finalist, a rep would probably check. And they would get pissed if they found out that the writer was really a QF.

So yes, it's dumb.

Luckily, most industry people...

I totally would've taken the 666 number. Missed opportunity there!

Re: Random film thread...

Just rewatched Hamburger Hill for the first time in many years. I've only seen it once before and had zero recollection of it, so it was like watching it for the first time. I had no idea Don Cheadle...

Re: Lit Agent for Dope-Ass Teen Sci-Fi Novel?

Serious question for OP: Do you use 'dope-ass' in your query subject lines? Do you describe it as 'fantastic' and 'extremely commercial' in the body of your email? If you do, or anything resembling...

Re: Need manager/agent suggestions for an opportunity

Assuming this guy is on the level (and you never know, because people like to puff themselves up), there's probably a better way to approach this.

Let's start with your work: which one is your...

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

In case anyone's wondering, Kailey Marsh, founder of the Blood List, is now a manager at Brillstein. Think this just happened recently.

As for the Black List, it's definitely true that reps push for...

Re: Can I do anything with a high placement in a screenwriting competition?

I was an Austin finalist in 2017, but it was in the TV drama spec category. Which means I had a free producers badge, a 1 in 3 chance of winning an award (and the potential of making a speech in...

Re: Brandon Blake, www.filmtvlaw.com

This is patently false, as I've had two attorneys (including current one), have signed no paying deals, and they both have done work for free on the promise that I would indeed sell something and pay...

I'm having no issues finding the usual stuff. Except for the Mandarin orange chicken at Trader Joe's. I can't ever find it now!

Re: LA Area Code...

Just so we're clear, Manhattan Beach is NOT an hour from LA. More like 15 mins from the westside (if traffic's okay, lol). I used to work in El Segundo, which is just north of MB, and the commute for...

Well, this is what happens when you elect a dumbf*ck game show host for president. Hopefully, it teaches us a lesson, but I doubt it.

Really don't think this is the pandemic that brings about a Mad Max hellscape, so I'll pass on buying a gun, thank you.

Re: Notes from Producers

I'm stuck on the first part where you mention it's a non-exclusive shopping agreement. By definition, a shopping agreement gives the producers exclusive control for X-amount of time. Either you're...

Re: A Page-One Rewrite for Free??

There's no use overthinking this situation, and no danger of burning bridges if you politely decline and move on. And I wouldn't help the guy find other writers, who might resent you if they get into...

Curious about your approach to this. I'm terrible at this part of the game. How do you go about reach out to stay in touch? A simple, "Hey, just checking in to say hi"? (not that simple, but you...

Re: What do people think of meetups?

Hemingway did blow his brains out with a shotgun, so I don't think the lonely writing life is all it's cracked up to be.

I've never done the meetup thing, however it is important to find a group of...

Anybody watching this? I'm about five episodes in and having a blast with it. It' starts off a bit on the cheesy side, but it's incredibly entertaining. I love the tongue-and-cheek tone, and Henry...

Re: Mandalorian...oh no he didn't!!

I haven't seen the last episode yet, but up to now I've been profoundly underwhelmed. It's meandering, uninspired, and filled with terrible dialogue. I really wanted to love this, and I was into it...

Re: If you have a manager and attorney, do you absolutely need an agent?

Second this. Character driven with a strong hook is a much better way to go.
